I am not normally one who does a lot of praying, but tonight, I pray for my friends in and around Baltimore. I pray for the city that I have visited countless times that it can heal and rebuild. Finally, I pray for the folks who believe that their idea of "protesting injustice" includes destroying their own neighborhoods as well as stealing Pringles, Arizona Tea and Funyuns. No one is being honored by that type of behavior. I hope that reason wins out in the end and the unrest is quelled.
I also want to take a minute to thank everyone who has messaged me to check on me. I was surprised that a lot of folks think I am actually from Baltimore. I'm not, I'm from North Carolina, but the concern showed is definitely appreciated.
So, now, I leave you with a video from Game 2 of the 2014 ALDS when the city was united and, if only for a moment, we all cheered as one.
